Tim has to wear Steel Toed boots to work, and has since he became a Paper Engineer 17 years ago. He has been through many boots in his career! When I was given the opportunity to review for Shoes for Crews I figured it was a perfect opportunity for him to help me with my review and Shoes for Crews Workboots.
He has had the Expedition Steel Toe boots for nearly a month now, so a great test of their quality with hours on the job. He even took them to Brazil on a business trip, so these Shoes for Crews have been on a trip!
The first thing Tim noted was the excellent traction! Shoes for Crews has patent pending SFC V-grip outsoles, tested for keeping you on your feet even in extreme conditions. Safety in a work setting includes great traction as you walk through spills, paper pulp laying on the floor, and more. The traction is outstanding in these shoes. This same SFC V-grip is used in the other slip resistant shoes for men from Shoes for Crews as well! Tie shoes, slip ons, boots.. each one is perfect for your workplace in it's traction and great fit.
They fit fantastic. I ordered based on his typical shoe size, a bit leery about ordering shoes online without trying them. No need to worry, they fit just perfect. Plenty of room in the toes and good ankle support. If for some reason they didn't fit great after 60 days you can return them risk free. Take a chance and try these number one slip resistant shoe.
Compared to other steel toed boots, these were about the same in weight. You have a little extra added with the steel of course but they compared nicely to others he has had.
The leather is the kind that will take a polish well if you are the type that needs to keep your shoes neat and polished for work.
The price is outstanding! $79.98 for this pair of shoes. We typically buy at a Farm supply store and these same style of boots would easily be $135 or more. There is a 'boot trailer' that comes to the mill to sell boots to the workers, since it is a requirement that they have them. The boots from the trailer are easily twice the price of Shoes for Crews, and aren't near the great quality.
The only concern Tim had with these shoes was that the top eyelets were not hooks. Typically he has had hooks in the top which provides much more ease in getting your foot in and out of the boot without having to loosen the laces. It also saves on wear and tear on the laces. He has noticed that the slacking them in and out of the eyelet is the potential life shorten-er of the laces. The friction tends to wear them out much quicker. Easy to replace the shoelaces of course, but that was the one thing he would change if he could.
Shoes for Crews has been a fantastic find for my husband and the work environment. I am going to be looking to Shoes for Crews for my boys as well once they start working summer jobs. I love that these have the #1 slip resistant traction, and the price is so affordable!!
